have to admit that I am not that crazy about white chocolate. Actually, if you stumble upon me in a supermarket, my shopping basket will contain a significant quantity of various chocolate bars, from creamy milk chocolate, filled with crunchy pecan and caramel bits, orange or almonds to bitter ones with high cocoa solids content. However, you won’t be able to find white chocolate inside whatsoever…
In most cases I find white chocolate to be too sweet and inferior in flavor when compared to other chocolates. A few years ago I even claimed that white chocolate, in fact, isn’t a “real chocolate” at all since it contains cocoa butter, milk powder, and sugar – but no cocoa solids! In time, I learned that there are lots of types of white chocolate but also that some manufacturers replace expensive cocoa butter with cheaper vegetable fats. So, read the labels, folks! Buy some good quality chocolate, the flavor, and the texture will be much better. Even though I don’t like to nibble white chocolate, I do like to chew on white chocolate and lemon truffle every now and then. These are lovely, creamy, and not too sweet, and you can roll them into candied lemon peel to get extra flavor and texture. If you don’t have , you can make it yourself, or if you are in a hurry, just roll your truffles in powdered sugar and Bob is your uncle! If you put these truffles in a nice box, you will get a wonderful handmade gift for someone special! If you are in the moode for something more complex, but so delicious, check my .
